Blood of Heroes
The Blood of Heroes is a vial containing the blood of fallen Blood Angels.
It was during the first battles of the Greyhell front against the Tau that the Blood of Heroes was created. The Chapter records that a single Blood Angel, outnumbered and alone, stood against an entire cadre of alien warriors, blessed by a single drop of blood from each of his fallen brothers gathered in a vial. The Battle-Brother claimed his brothers spoke to him through their blood and strengthened his will to survive against his foes. After testing the truth of the Battle-Brother’s tale, the Chapter's Chaplains declared the gathered blood a relic of the Jericho Reach and a reminder of the duty all Blood Angels owe to the Crusade.
If a Battle-Brother carries the Blood of Heroes into battle, he will feel the presence of the essence of the fallen warriors it holds.
